Brian and Charles
Can friendship be built from spare parts? Welsh director Jim Archer’s debut feature tells the story of Brian, a lonely inventor, and Charles, his ramshackle robot friend with a washing machine for a tummy. Built in Brian’s cowshed with materials from the scrapyard, Charles suddenly comes alive as a cheeky, homespun AI, transforming Brian’s life of seclusion into a grand adventure through a series of hilarious mishaps.
This heartwarming comedy reveals the ways imagination, invention, and friendship can help us to rediscover the world’s beauty. Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian calls this robot comedy the “bromance of the year.” Part of our New Visions, New Voices series.
